A Dad's perspective on his little girls wedding!

With over 30 years experience working with Brides and Grooms with their big day - Barb and I have stepped on the other side of the counter. Our oldest daughter Jackie married Alan on July 3rd 2004. In two short weeks our youngest daughter will be wed in St Kitts to Ryan. I must say that even though we take every wedding very seriously, it is definitely different when its your daughters. Jackies wedding was the traditional church wedding. Jami has opted for a destination wedding with an "island themed" reception here in Chambersburg.

As many of you know Barb and I are extremely close to Jackie and Jami. We feel so blessed to not only spend lots of time with them, but also work the Bridal business together. I'm a bit of a sentimental sap - doing as good as was possible on Jackies wedding day. Not quite sure how I'll do on Jamis day (Thank God its on St Kitts - at least not a huge audience for my blubbering) The important thing to Barb and I is the fact that both of our daughters have the weddings that they wanted and that they have a marriage that is strong and filled with love.

We will be updating the blog (along with facebook / twitter) with pictures from St Kitts for those of you who are interested.
